Reporting to the Supervisor, End User Computing, our Desktop Support (Site Support) is a Tier 2 end-user support position. Our ideal candidate is a jack-of-all trades, with a customer service orientation and focus on technology.

Your customers will range from operators to engineers to scientists; the ideal candidate would have experience providing support in an enterprise environment. There will also be remote support of the Vancouver and Calgary head office to fill any free cycles that may come up.

  • Self-starter. While we are a tight-knit team, being able to buckle down and working proactively with no prompting is important, as there is plenty to do.
